After filling our bellies at Smorgasburg in Williamsburg, we discovered the East River State Park located in the lot right next to the Smorgasburg. The park is a great passive recreation space full of fun wooden spring toys, bridges and a log choo-choo train.
The East River State Park is right along the waterfront in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn. The park offers a stunning unobstructed view of the Manhattan skyline. The site was originally a 19th century shipping dock, and when exploring the park you can discover unique historical remnants like old cobblestone streets and railroad tracks embedded in concrete.
So, next time you bring your kids to taste the amazing culinary finds at Smorgasburg make sure to try the yummy mini s’mores from S’more Bakery, and take a little history trip to Brooklyn’s past and let them explore the East River State Park.
